Richmond Kickers at Philadelphia Union 6/5/18 - US Open Cup Picks & Predictions

Date & Time: NaN/NaN/NaN, Invalid Date
Latest Odds: PHI -1.5 Total: 3.25

Philadelphia Union were engaged in a really frustrating match against Atlanta United and saw their undefeated streak come to an end. They will now have to overcome their anger, as they will play host to the Richmond Kickers on Tuesday, in the round of 32 of the US Open Cup. The Kickers have not been very strong this season, but their offense can easily cause problems.

Philadelphia Union are coming off a really bad result on the road against Atlanta United, where they fell by 1-3. However, they were left with 9 men on the pitch when the referee sent off both Bedoya and Medunjanin with second yellow cards at the 19th minute. That very frustrating loss came to put an end to their four-match undefeated streak (3-0-1). Philadelphia are still sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 18 points, just one point behind the playoff spots. They have been really strong at home so far (4-1-2) but have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last five in this venue.
Richmond Kickers should not be happy about the outcome of their last match either, where they saw their opponents overturn their lead to win by 2-1. They have now lost two in a row and have kept just a single clean sheet in their 12 matches in all competitions so far. They are now sitting at the 14th spot of the Eastern Conference of the USL, with just 10 points after 10 matches (3-6-1). They have failed to win any of their four away matches in all competitions (0-3-1), but they have scored in all of them.

Odds Table

Philadelphia are not having the best of seasons so far, but they have been really competitive lately. They are coming off a really bad loss and they will surely be looking for a big win here. They will most likely get it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw goals from both sides.
